Facebook event of the day.
From Thursday 10th to Sunday 13th of November the 13th annual Historical Materialism conference will take place in London. The theme this year is 'Limits, Barriers and Borders'. Organized by the journal of the same name, the Historical Materialism conferences are spaces for discussion, debate and the launching of collective projects. Several friends and co-workers of the IIRE will participate, presenting papers, chairing meetings or otherwise participating in the event.
In the first four months of 2015, 1,770 Africans and Asians drowned on their way to Europe. With the death toll in the Mediterranean rising by the thousands, the European Union has showed once again that it is ready to pay the price of lives lost at sea in order to maintain the myth of sovereignty over its borders.
REINFORM cordially invites you to a discussion over the human rights cost of the EU closing the gates to unwanted outsiders, and the fair distribution of refugees in the European Union.
We are very happy to join the efforts of Unofficial Histories 2015 to open up history beyond the official and the mainstream. As the conference takes place in Amsterdam this year, we have the opportunity to support this inspiring initiative and host the screening of Rebelse Stad / Rebellious City at our institute. Come and spread the word! Please join the FB event.
This month we are showing movies that are dedicated to break the silence imposed by official histories and/ or give voice to the movements that organize and fight against injustice and inequality. On April 9th, we start with Shadow Play. Shadow Play is an account of a hidden chapter of Indonesia’s history, the 1965-66 massacres that gave birth to General Suharto’s New Order in Indonesia.
